  5. Which specialty of RN nursing finds the most satisfaction

  12. Why do a lot of people aim for the bare minimum?

    Do you realize that the paramedic program is often a 2 year associates program- which would take you just as long as an ASN? I myself work as an EMT while currently in nursing school. A lot of...
